Havuarah Shalom

This three hundred family congregation purchased two adjacent warehouses on a quarter block in Northwest Portland. RB/A transformed the two original buildings into a single 8,500 SF facility, by joining them with a skylit entrance gallery. The building includes a sanctuary, social hall, library, offices, and classrooms. The work was completed over three phases. Phase I contained the temporary sanctuary and offices, Phase II, the social hall, library and classrooms. Phase III completed the sanctuary interior. A laser-cut steel art screen, installed at the large east window, buffers worshippers from passing pedestrians and traffic.
